TAKE A LOOK-Asia GDP: New Zealand's economy races ahead on people boom

New Zealand's economy surged ahead in the third quarter as
consumers spent with abandon while homebuilding and tourism
boomed, cementing expectations the country's central bank was
done cutting interest rates. 
    Gross domestic product rose 1.1 percent, above economists'
forecast of a gain of 0.9 percent, putting it among the rich
world's fastest-growing nations.
